|This fish, called Gourami, was on lots of menus
in Bali but we had never heard of it before.
It was a dead good white fish.
|One thing we were very impressed with was
how well our food was always presented.
Here is a beautiful tower of roast veggies
with mozzarella - it looks good enough to eat!
|Cap cay - a Chinese influenced Indonesian dish of stir fried
vegetables and meat. Simple, and tasty.
|Ok fine, we ate a lot of "western" food!
But it had been so long since we'd seen a
Mexican restaurant and I had wanted to go
for my birthday! Anyway, mega tasty burrito!
|I can't remember the name of this dish but it was a tuna
steak covered with a delicious, spicy tomato and red
pepper sauce, served with sticky red rice and crispy onions.
|Tuna again, this time topped with Indonesian style sambal.
This is basically raw onion, tomato, chilli, garlic and lemon
grass all smashed together with lime juice. Yum.
|This vegetable kept popping up everywhere. It's some kind of
spinach-like leaf, possibly called morning glory. It's tasty and
we've had it all over Asia, this is just our first photo of it.
|One of the best things we've eaten so far. It's a fish called Mahi-mahi,
and it's a very light, mild white fish that came as a huge barbecued
steak with sauce. I wish I could eat this every day!
|Dave says that these shrimps were amazing. Seven huge
ones for £2.50, barbecued to crustacean perfection.
|The last two dishes were bought on
the beach in Sanur at "Jack Fish".
Very cheap and amazing food.
The young waiter is also hilarious.
Check it out.
|A new fruit! This is called snake fruit, and I'm sure you
can see why (hint: look at the skin!). It was very firm on
the outside, but once peeled, the fruit was similar to
lychee in texture, but tasted a bit like pineapple. Odd.
|This was a special kind of curry with tofu and something
called tempe - it's made from whole soy-beans and is a
meat substitute that had a firm texture and a mild flavour.
They curry itself was dead good - coco-nutty and creamy.
|Gado-gado - an Indonesian tradition. Simply put, it's steamed
vegetables covered in peanut sauce. It's really rich and the
sauce is much more like peanut butter than any other
we've encountered thus far. Good, but not brilliant.
|We also decided to try the red snapper. This was really
creamy and moist, but also a bit lacking in seasoning.
Both were lovely bits of fish though.
|Here is the kitchen, outside the restaurant. This woman
is preparing the sausages that are made from parts of the
sucking pig. The meat is used to make all sorts of dishes.
And now for some fun...
|Dragon fruit shake! I always thought
dragon fruits were white inside, but
they can be fuchsia pink too!
|This one's for you Catherine! A new
flavour of Walkers. Sometimes we
got a really salmony one, which was
a bit weird, but generally, not bad.
|To answer the question you are undoubtedly
screaming at your computer screens...
yes, it tasted just like normal Pepsi.
